Terrible and toxic people making the game terrible for others?

@DDDDLife That stuff is way too excessive for PSO2. It's dumb that people take the game seriously enough to treat learning players like crap. I'd understand it if we were playing a game with intense mechanics where gear score is the difference between life or death or if not learning a proper strategy for a boss wipes the entire party after an hour plus of waiting in queue, but PSO2 is not that intense. It's insanely casual, which is part of what makes it fun. Absolutely no excuse for that kind of behavior imo.

@ey In my experience, you cut out a lot of the BS by avoiding blocks 1, 2, and 69. lol Aside from that, I only get trouble when I'm in an instance with someone with "loli" in their name or something along those lines.

@ApollosAmour yeah the loli people is what everyone talks about when they say toxic.

@ox-SILENCER-xo So far in my experience, they're absolutely the worst. I see all kind of pervs playing and I don't exclude myself there, but the loli crowd is always the most obnoxious and the most inappropriate. It says a lot too that at least half or more of those X-rated SAs are focused on loli content.

i mean they are not wrong. The internet mentality is that of a 6 year old boy trying to prove themselves the better.

Nah. If you mute or blacklist all those people in internet instead of playing their games, you can actually find a lot of good and interesting stuff. an anime game works the same Im pretty sure of it.

Your giving the internet too much credit.

Pretty sure im not

Ive seen cringe stuff ingame, but nothing that toxic or bad towards people yet, all the contrary in fact

@Dragon-Cloud That's pretty lucky then. I seen some crappy stuff in game. Mostly from those at higher levels.

@Dragon-Cloud It is mostly cringe, but there are some really obnoxious and rude people too. Mainly in the form of bullying people for not having BIS gear or not being pros in multi-team missions. There was a ton of drama recently on Ship 2 for an alliance doing that.

I haven't come across any kinds of bullying but I will offer the same advice I do most places. If someone is harassing you, report them, blacklist them, and ignore them. There's no need to continue speaking or acknowledging their whining, so let the GMs investigate their actions. If the GM determines them to be liable for a slap to the wrist, then so be it. Who knows. It may even encourage them stop their noise pollution antics.

Good advice, I seen people do that and then I seen others take it to a another step of bullying. There where a few reddit posts, luckily more mature players helped them out and the other people got temp bans.

Seems being on Ship 4 is a good thing. 😛 Honestly can't remember seeing any toxicity.

The loli SA's however are spammed, though I rarely sit in block 1-3 so don't really see it all that often lol.

@Kats They seem to come and go, but a lot of weirdos play the game so it's sadly something to get used to lol I've just turned off all SAs in general lately, as much as I like making and sharing them.

I'm pretty sure you are guys are familiar with those toxic people at chat.

Look, I'm fairly new to this game, playing only for about 2 weeks or less. But my experience chatting with others has been terrible. Honestly, there are 2 times in the game where I was toxic chat targeted, and their answer is always the same "It's the internet, you are not safe from it", which is hugely ironic, because those same people think they are safe on the internet to cause distress in the chats for me and for other players also.

I dunno, many players just dont care, they tell you off to "Toughten up" which is just dismissive of other's misfortunes. I'm seriosuly legit scared to chat with other players in the chat because one time I was called out "You suck" when I felt frustrated for failing to defeat a buss at super hard difficulty and also previously I was called "Virgin" just because I said something in the chat they dont like when they spammed their disgusting hentai images. (People still use "Virgin" unironicaly as an insult).

After trying to get the message of "Mature up" to others (Which obviously fails to get through their thick skull), I was started to be compared to another random long-term player in the game that was named "Vitamin" or something as a means of degradation and mockery, which just speaks words of how toxic all of this is.

This is just beyond sad, bunch of grown ass manchildren being an complete act and trying to be tough on a random anime MMORPG game chat is just pathetic, I would pity them, but unfortunately they dont deserve it.

Fail to defeat super hard boss? Complain on lewd SA?

Yeah that's gonna be a cringe from me bro, you're the toxic one there lmao.

To be fair, SHUQs are pretty rough at first and the porn SAs get really obnoxious. I'd say if you're dealing with getting hassled with a lot, block the people doing it and try to find a good alliance. Alliance chat is usually really chill and a lot more understanding.
